He saw her in someone today,
but, it wasn’t her.
He realized that it has been very long
he departed in her,
but she still persist in him. 😐
Maybe you weren’t the one for me,
but deep down I wanted you to be. 🙂
they found someone better in their way,
they were not infidel, but they did move ahead. 😐

but they have forgotten that
Allah is above them” 😥

India is known to the world for its spirituality. Nature is revered and worshiped in all forms—trees, rivers, animals, grain even tools are all worshiped.
So, why the bond between us humans be left behind. Raksha Bandhan is one such a festival where the bond between a brother and sister is celebrated.
Sisters apply tilak on the foreheads of their brothers as they vow to take care and protect their sisters. A sacred thread is tied on the wrist. A time immemorial ritual and bond is re-ignited.
The festival is celebrated every year on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Shravan (August).
On the day of rakhi, the pooja ki thali is decorated with a deepak, the sacred rice grains mixed with turmeric and kum kum. With the brother seated in front, the sister both blesses and worships him by circling the holy fir, sprinkling the sacred grains, applying the tilak and then tying the rakhi.
Fire is central to Hindu value system. It symbolizes energy and ever-lasting vigour. The tilak is always applied on the temple, between the eyebrow where the spiritual third eye, the eye of wisdom and knowledge is supposed to be located.
In modern times, rakhi is often tied around the arms of people who actually protect the public today. It is common sight to see women tying rakhi’s on the arms of soldiers.
In recent times the festival is being celebrated by followers of other faith too. Beyond everything, it celebrates the affection between siblings.
There’s no other love like the love for a brother. There’s no other love like the love from a brother..
